Our exclusive mix of dwarf, drought tolerant grasses and Microclover® is an eco-friendly, low maintenance alternative to traditional lawns. As its name implies, Rough & Ready holds up well to wear- a great solution for play areas with kids and dogs.
Rough & Ready is more shade tolerant than our other alternative lawn options. Once established it requires little supplemental irrigation or fertilizer and tolerates acidic and shady planting sites.
The Microclover in the mix feeds the companion grasses with nitrogen making them look great all year long. The Microclover itself has a nice dark green color and its inclusion in the grass allows the soil to retain more moisture in the dry periods which sustains the overall lush appearance of grass through the summer.
Mow about once a month to maintain this lawn at a height between 3 and 5 inches.
